Christine S. Arias

Associate Director - Career Education, Advising, & DEI

As the Associate Director - Career Education, Advising, and DEI with the van Vlissingen Center for Career and Professional Development, my role is to guide students and alumni along their career journey. 

My motivator is students and alumni becoming empowered to choose and lead the life that they want for themselves. I believe that we are most likely to find satisfaction in our work when our values, needs, and interests align, at least somewhat, with our professional lives. I truly enjoy providing services and resources that raise both self and career awareness. 

As a Career Advisor, it is my responsibility to stay up-to-date on the world-of-work trends and provide these insights to our campus community. I regularly attend virtual workshops hosted by professional associations and I am a member of NACE, VACE, and NCDA.
